Spring is coming very soon, so I thought I would show you some of the most prominent trends that I have seen on the catwalks and in magazines

1) Plum/purple shades
So many designers have used plums and purples as the main focus on the face, whether it be the eyes, lips or cheeks
Dolce & Gabana

Derek Lam

Matthew Williamson

Pull off the look:

2) Pops of blue
Many designers had their models rocking hints of blue on the waterline, as graphic liner and even all over the eye. This look isn't easily pulled off, but can be done by adding just a small amount - less is more in this case.

Elie Saab



Pull off the look:

3) Minimal/Glowy skin
A main look that was seen on the runway was very natural makeup or none at all, and fresh dewy skin.

 Jason Wu

Marc Jacobs

Pull off the look:

I can't wait to try out these looks, and hopefully this gave you some inspiration to switch up your makeup for this season!

I'm pretty sure we all know who Kendall Jenner is, and if you don't, have you been living in a cave?
We all knew her as being a sister of the well known Kardashians (who I am obsessed with), but now she has come out of their shadow and rose to fame walking the catwalk for designers like Marc Jacobs, and has more recently become the face of Estée Lauder.  

Although sometimes her makeup is very dramatic and smokey, I love her natural, everyday makeup and style, so I am going to show you how to achieve that look.


Kendall's everyday makeup is so natural and fresh, so I tried to recreate it as best as I could. It's a great makeup look if you're in a hurry but still want to look presentable as it is very quick and easy to do.
Here's what I used:
(Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, Maybelline bb cream, Max factor eyeshadow, Maybelline Dream Touch blush in Berry, Natural Collection Waterguard mascara, Benefit Ultra Plush lipgloss in A-lister, Benefit Watt's Up highlighter, Soap&Glory Perfect Ten eyeshadow palette.) 

All of the makeup I used is very natural, and I used a cream blush so it wouldn't look as powdery on the skin.

The kardashians all have amazing, thick eyelashes, so I used the black eyeshadow called Smokin' from the Soap and Glory Palette to make my lashline look thicker.
I used eyeshadow instead of eyeliner as it is a lot more natural looking. I used the colour Gold Coast all over my eyes because Kendall always has a light gold shimmery colour on.
 I didn't draw on my eyebrows as heaavily as I usually would, I just filled in the sparse areas.


Kendall's everyday style is very casual and effortless, but it  is still quite girly and chic which I love. Here is the look I came up with that I think is something she would wear:

Denim shirt:

Tshirt: Primark



The reason I didn't add any accesories is because I feel that you should tailor this to your own style.
So many 'get the looks' are the exact replica of the celebrity, but I feel that you should interpret into your own; not hide behind a celebrity's style.
Fashion is such a good way to express yourself, so you should never be afraid to wear what makes you happy, and what you feel comfortable in.

I hope this gave you some inspiration, and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments!
